Little over, but the CPU, GPU and PSU are great.

Agree with him. You can't really stream with a $500-$600 computer. Although if you wanna stay true to your budget, here is this one. Will play literally anything on 1080p above 55 fps.

  1. Where are you located?
  2. Do you need an operating system os Windows?
  3. Any peripherals needed? (Mouse, keyboard, etc)

Assuming that you have everything in terms of peripherals and software, then here's a great bang-for-buck $700 gaming/streaming PC:

While an SSD isn't necessary, it does provide fast read and write speeds compared to a mechanical drive.

This build drops the SSD and gives more budget towards a better CPU:
